Check it out, I wrote this comment on the recent front page story on Forsett:
The one remarkable thing that I found in watching highlights of Forsett’s play in Seattle is his uncanny ability to reach the first down marker whenever he touches the ball. Regardless of what down it is or whether he’s running or catching the ball, I noticed that more often than not, when the play is whistled dead that Forsett has achieved a first down. And even more remarkable is that he’s usually hit by the first defender well before the first down marker, yet he finds a way to get that extra yardage to buy the team four more chances. That doesn’t seem like something you can coach — I think a lot of it is field vision and having a nose for the "yellow line". I wonder if there’s some statistic somewhere that tracks a player’s ability to achieve a first down depending on where he is on the field at the time he receives the ball — that would be interesting.
And then I find this story. Cool.
